Some of you know that I have collected on Carole Lombard since I have been 20 yrs old. Hmmmmm, that makes it around 36 yrs I have been collecting and reading about her. She was such a terrific gal. She could walk in to today's world and not miss a beat. Her life tragically ended in 1942, in a plane crash. She was returning to her husband, Clark Gable. She had been selling war bond in her hometown of Ft. Wayne, IN. She was only 33. A bright spirit was lost that day.
March 29, 1939 was the day Gable and Lombard were married, so tomorrow would have been their 74th!
Wedding Day March 29, 1939
Love this one
The diamond and ruby clips she is wearing on her hat and neckline, were a gift from Gable. She was wearing them at her death. Gable wore a chip of one of the pieces found in the wreckage, around his neck
The beautiful ranch, Encino. I was lucky enough to see it from the end of the drive
One of my favorites from the ranch
Another favorite, on the tailgate of their woody wagon, used for hunting trips
Something enticed me to read this book, when I was 20. I have been hooked on Carole, ever since!
Happy Easter to all.
